Location and price are the two keys for the Thorobred Motel. Only a couple miles from both the harness track and the flat track. Had a room with one double bed, room size was good, bathroom is tiny, offering only a stand-up shower (more like a phone booth with water). Mini fridge and microwave in the room. Old, 13-inch CRT TV in room, does offer good cable channels. No housekeeping services during my stay. Furniture looks like it was picked up at a flea market from the 1970s, but it is serviceable. Make no mistake, this hotel needs a lot of remodeling and care, but if all you need is a place to stay for a great rate during racing season, this works. It is not nearly as good as the Robinhood Motel or even the Top Hill, but the rates are nearly $50 less per night during the racing season.
